Quotations of Frederick Zappone


  • The way out of suffering is through it. Resist suffering and suffering increases. Acceptance, in the moment, that you are suffering will dissolve your suffering instantly.
  • You are perfect in every way until you compare yourself with another.
  • Your need to control things is based on the fear of things controlling you.
  • What you worry about is what controls you.
  • Every one of us is allowed to suffer in order that we can grow in compassion and sensitivity towards the suffering of others.
  • When someone treats us unkindly we learn how to treat others with great kindness.
  • Living successfully today requires us to leave the past behind us.
  • Strangers can love you easier than family because strangers have no history with you that they can hold against you.
  • Only people who live in fear feel the need to abuse others.
  • Trying too hard is un-attractive (does not attract) and pushes away from us the very things we want.
  • When you encounter obstacles or roadblocks that are between you and what you want out of life choose to be like the “wind and water” and “flow” up, over, around or under them rather than fighting them and giving them power over you.
  • We become free to follow the desires of our heart when we are influenced more by our own thoughts than the thoughts of others.
  • Happiness allows us to walk over the top of our problems while unhappiness allows us to drown in them.
  • In life, we always have two choices about our circumstances; we can change our circumstances or we can change our attitude about our circumstances. Once we change our attitude, our circumstances change naturally.
  • When we stop finding faults in ourselves, we will stop finding faults in others.
  • A relaxed mind solves even the most difficult problems, in life, easily. A stressed out mind delays problems being solved. A closed mind prevents problems from being solved altogether.
  • God most often answers our prayers in the form of an inspired thought or creative idea that either sets us free or moves us to tears.
  • God lives in the moment. If you want to find God, live there too!
  • Discarding the past and forgetting about the future by living in the moment will give you the peace of mind you seek.
  • Being rejected is part of life, get over it.
  • Life doesn’t always go your way, don’t take it personally.
  • Most people are full of crap, love them anyway.
  • If you care about you, others will too!
  • Putting other people first all the time will put you back at the end of the line.
  • Life is not difficult, it is only our thinking that makes it so..
  • Find humor in your problems and they will seem smaller to you.
  • Love won’t solve the problems of the world but it certainly makes the ride worthwhile.
  •  Don’t take yourself too seriously, no one else does.
  • An overly generous heart can lead you to the poor house.
  • Sometimes it hurts to think, that’s why people get headaches.
  • Creating prosperity is “simple” to do and yet many people judge that “simple thought” as “too good too be true” while never judging the thought that scarcity and lack of money are “too bad to be true”.
  • The one real weakness we have is underestimating the part our very own thoughts played in creating the circumstances we have in our life today.
  • Every thought we think is a prayer to God.
  • The only reason people don’t have their prayers answered is because they quit praying before their prayer request is fulfilled.
  • Expressing sincere prayers of gratitude for what we have guarantees that we will have more.
  • When you see all that you do as God’s sees it, perfect in every way, the universe begins supplying you with evidence that validates God’s truth that what you do “is” perfect in every way…
  • Any time you are feeling negative, you are not loving and approving of yourself. If you were loving and approving of yourself, you would never feel negative.
